Richard C. Meyer's graphic novel is a good project from Kickstarter

I got an email from Richard C. Meyer, promoting a new graphic novel he's written called No Enemy But Peace that focuses on the heroics he witnessed in the Iraq war, and on one soldier in particular:
No Enemy, But Peace is the true story of Marco Martinez, a former gang-banger who found his true calling as a rifleman in the Marines.

When his friend and squad leader, Corporal Timothy Tardif is injured during their first firefight, Martinez rallies his embattled squad while single-handedly taking down a bunker full of jihadists.
Now that's very good they're putting it that way and telling just who the enemy is the US army was facing there! Reading this, I now realize that I was mistaken if I'd thought earlier Kickstarter wasn't sincere enough in their goals, but now, thanks to projects like this that make an effort to show the US military in a positive way, I realize that they do have good stuff to offer, and NEBP definitely looks like something worth supporting.

Even so, I really wish that they hadn't associated themselves with Micah Wright after all the embarrassment he'd caused, and Wright by sharp contrast is definitely a writer whose works should be avoided.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
